Water tanks

Hi Ahuroa,

I’ve started a new plastics business, unfortunately I’m no longer in the area but used to help with the grapevine and was part of the local fire brigade so would love your support if you are looking for a new 30,000 L water tank

We manufacture one of the strongest water tanks on the market with the highest standard shot weight and largest dome (making it the most self supporting on the market) our tanks have a 20 year warranty and are fully UV stabilized using NZ standard resins.

Our Delivery price to Rodney is $110 for one tank and $132 for two tanks please feel free to contact me on 09 390 2209 or visit our website www.bigwatertanks.co.nz

Thanks

Vincent Frandsen

FOR SALE: Coconut weedmat over 100m2

$120 – Thick coconut coir wet mat in a roll – approximately 100- 150m2 left (estimate only).

Coconut matting is great for water retention and weed suppression. As a natural product it biodegrades and adds organic material to the soil.

This is a high quality thicker mat that is estimated to last up to 2 years. It is a higher quality than the standard available in hardware stores. Cheaper version sells for $88 per 25m2

Our musician this month is Puhoi singer songwriter, Natalie Northover Winter who will entertain with a mix of old and new songs. We will also be joined by buskers Five ‘n’ Dime performing in their own fun and relaxed style.

A few new stall holders this month. Sinead will be selling delicious vegan cakes which are gluten and refined sugar free, Charlie selling warm merino clothes for both kids and adults, Barbara a felting expert with a table full of hand-made treasures and Brianna fund-raising for SPCA.

A car boot sale is on with a few locals offering their wares. Still some spaces available. Email puhoivillagemarket@gmail.com or phone 0274 270 440 to book a spot.

So on Sunday morning, grab a coffee and something delicious to eat, listen to live music, catch up with friends and treat yourself to some of the local crafts and produce on offer. Kids’ corner this month will be making night sky pictures.

Tickets are available at the Community Table for the Puhoi Village Market Fundraiser on Saturday, 4 August, with beautiful music by In2Strings. We are fundraising to buy a gazebo for the Kids activities.
